We want to put your mind at ease about ordering online, especially live plants. If for any reason you are unhappy with your order please contact us by email and let's talk about it!

Healthy Plants Guaranteed

When you place an order with Wilson Bros Gardens, we guarantee that you will receive healthy, container-grown, landscape-ready plants of retail nursery quality and size that are ready upon arrival to plant and thrive in your landscape. If for any reason you wish to return a plant(s), we allow you 30 days after delivery to do so on plants that have not been transplanted to the ground or other containers. More on returns further below. 

If you have any concerns about the health or size of a plant received, we ask that you contact us within 72 hours so that we can quickly resolve the issue. Please email us at [email protected] with a photo(s) of each plant(s), each  box, and packaging materials so that we can properly assess the condition and/or damages to any plants. This way, if necessary, we can make a claim with the carrier (FedEx, UPS or USPS) in the event there are damages and get replacements or refunds sent out right away!

So that when shopping for plants in our online store you can choose and receive only plants that should thrive where you live, we provide USDA Plant Hardiness Zone ranges in several locations on every plant page in our website. Plants purchased and planted in USDA Zones where they are not listed as hardy cannot be guaranteed.

In the rare but possible event that a plant was misnamed or improperly tagged, we will replace or refund. In no case shall we be liable for more than the purchase price of the plants. Human error happens and we have no problem in admitting when we have made a mistake, and correcting it.

Note: There are often numerous common names for the same plant, but only one scientific name. Sometimes the common plant names used on our website will not identically match the common name on the plant tag attached to the plant that you receive. This happens because plant label makers from various regions of the country might use different common names, but we guarantee the scientific botanical name will be a match!

Because we truly care about people and plants and hate to hear when a plant has died at a point in time beyond the usual term of our guarantee, we will often provide a partial store credit in the form of a gift card code on a case by case basis.  We really do hate to see our customers disappointed. 

We cannot offer any guarantee beyond our normal guarantee for plants purchased from us that are transplanted to and grown in above ground pots or other containers that are situated indoors or outdoors.

Though we guarantee our plants to be live and healthy, we have no control over how, when or where you plant them, follow up care, or what Mother Nature may or may not decide to do. In our Advice Articles, which can be easily searched using the Advice Search at the top-center of every page on our website, you will find helpful articles provided by our experts pertaining to planting and care advice for every type of plant we offer. Learn more about how to use the Advice Search to find just the information or answers to question you need

Northerners Please Note:

Because we grow all of our plants outdoors and they are fully acclimated to outdoor conditions, if you live and garden in USDA Zone 7b south through Zone11 you can safely plant and purchase our plants at any time of year. However, if you live and garden in the colder USDA Zones 3a through 7a we strongly suggest that during the seasonal transitional period from late winter to early spring you time your purchases so as to avoid damage from cold weather conditions. A general rule of thumb is that once all chances of a late frost in Spring have passed in your area it is safe to purchase our plants throughout the rest of the year. That said, just make sure that if you are planting outdoors that the plant you are planting is listed as cold hardy in your USDA Plant Hardiness Zone. On every plant page in our website you can find the USDA Zone listings in 3 different places on the page. To help you know when is the best time to purchase plants from us during this seasonal transition period please visit our article titled When Is The Best Time To Order Plants And Trees Online

Find Your USDA Zone >

Because we ship hundreds of orders every day and upwards of a 1,000 or more plant varieties each having unique  cold hardiness thresholds, and based on that it is impossible for us to track current or future weather conditions in over 41,000 zip codes in the 48 continental United States, we cannot guarantee plants against winter cold damage that are shipped to locations where the plant is not listed to be cold hardy.

Safe Shipping Guaranteed

We are confident in our packaging and shipping department and guarantee safe shipping during transit. We use the highest level and quality of packaging methods. 

In the rare but possible event that the box containing your plants was poorly handled by the shipping carrier, resulting in damages that are detrimental to the health of the plant, we ask that you DO NOT proceed with planting the damaged plant(s). Once a damaged plant is removed from its nursery pot and planted in the ground or another pot we can no longer guarantee that plant. 

Instead, if you have received a plant(s) that has been damaged during transit, and are concerned to any extent that the damage will compromise its health or survival, please take a photo of the damaged box(es) and plant(s) and forward them to us at [email protected] within 72 hours of receiving the items. Replacement or reimbursement cannot be processed without a digital image(s), which are necessary in order for us to make a proper claim with the carrier and get replacement plants shipped out to you right away!
